Can’t wait until Fox newscasters try to rip into a 12 year old. You think Bill O’Reilly might take some shots at a child as well? I hope so, otherwise they would fail to meet up to their journalistic standards which resemble that of an 11 year old. So in some ways, this letter written by 12 year old Jackson Ripley would be too mature for Fox to handle.
This one letter, pretty much tells the story about the Romney campaign and why he will never win over hearts in America unless they are freeze chilled to -45 degrees Fahrenheit. Jackson Ripley, we all commend and thank you. Just read below to discover the simple and basic underlying reasons as to why Romney will never be elected. For one, Ripley points out that he contradicted himself about healthcare on two different national t.v. shows.
I can and probably will never understand why presidential candidates can flip-flop as much as this, but can get away with it live another day. Read the letter after the jump.
The fellows, or perhaps just fellow, over at Giant Freakin Robot always are posting interesting science news. Well today, here is one story from science fiction and one from reality. First up are some deleted scenes from Prometheus.
If you have not seen the movie, I don’t think this will ruin it too much, but it will give some ideas away about the movie. So, yea, probably skip past that. For those that have seen this movie and have been left a bit dumbfounded by the huge plot holes, hopefully this will fill you in a little bit. Overall, seems like Ridley Scott and the studio kept the movie short in theatres, put these clips on the DVD to raise sales and then keep us waiting until they release the sequel.
Fuck you Hollywood, but thank you for giving us something.
After that, you can check out an interesting message Carl Sagan left for future human explorers on Mars. Kinda cool how he predicts the future and how similar times were when he recorded this and where we are now. The ideas are still pretty much the same. Perhaps he was just ahead of his time…
In a surprising move, especially for a hip-hop artist, Frank Ocean took to his Tumblr to address the suspicions that he has feelings for the same sex. It was a bold thing to do, considering the unease some people still have around people that are gay. However, in the world we live in today and the openness we are supposed to have, it makes sense that someone finally came clean and wasn’t afraid to admit it. I was surprised myself, considering he is a new artist, with a new album coming out and this might not necessarily go over smoothly with a vast majority of hip-hop fans. However, with the backing of friends like Tyler the Creator and Russell Simmons, it seems as though we are finally making progression in the limitations society puts on homosexuals. In fact, this could very much help Ocean move some more albums because there are still many people in this world that are scared and hide behind themselves due to the fear that society will reject them.
Frank is definitely paving the way for more artists that may be bi or homosexual. It must have been tough for Ocean to come clean with his feelings, but it was something that had to be done. Maybe we can now turn the page, not be so critical of a person’s sexuality and just listen to his music…cuz what does your sexuality have to do with listening to good music anyway? NOTHING. Good for Frank and his movement and hopefully the rest of the music world will be on board with him too.
I know I don’t care either way…perhaps this can all be traced back to Lil B’s movement when he named his album “I’m Gay”…not that he is…he just made the word “gay” more acceptable by forcing people to see that the word has many different meanings and we shouldn’t be afraid of it. Now only if Justin Beiber finally comes clean…sorry had to throw in one joke.
